Pursuant to a legislative requirement, GAO reviewed the Federal Communications Commission's (FCC) new rule on wireless radio services. GAO noted that: (1) the rule would permit wireless carriers the use of handset-based solutions, or hybrid solutions that require changes both to handsets and wireless networks in providing caller location information as part of Enhanced 911 services; and (2) FCC complied with the applicable requirements in promulgating the rule.
